SPOKANE-- Thousands of pull tabs collected for the Ronald McDonald house were stolen from a Spokane Valley business on September 11.
Crime Check took a burglary report from a storage unit on Frederick Ave. in Millwood that Tuesday. A member of the West Valley Kiwana's Club called to report several bins of pull tabs they had collected for the Ronald McDonald house were stolen.
West Valley Kiwana Club members estimated 1,050 pounds of aluminum pull tabs had been stolen.
The West Valley Kiwana's have collected pull tabs for the Ronald McDonald house for over 12 years. To date, they have collected four-million tabs. They had accumulated close to another million tabs which they were going to donate to the Ronald McDonald house sometime this October.
The Spokane County Sheriff's Office Investigative Task Force and Investigative Support Unit detectives have been investigating this burglary. They have been able to recover about 700 pounds of the stolen pull tabs. The West Valley Kiwana's Club has requested that if anyone has the remaining tabs to return them to any Sheriff's Office Scope station, COPS station or the Longhorn Barbecue in Spokane Valley.
